How come you can't start Graham and those 3 WR's? Does your league not use this format:

RB/WR: Nicks
WR1: Welker
WR2: Smith
TE: Graham

If you can't find a spot for Graham, then that's tough. There is no way you can bench Welker. And I think Nicks is slightly better than Steve Smith. He should torch that Buffalo secondary. And I'd have to give a slight edge of Steve Smith over Jimmy Graham. But if you can, find a way to play all 4 of them.

No, roll with the receivers you got. Who the hell is your starting TE if Jimmy Graham is on the bench?

We do not have to start a TE if we don't want to.. you can roll with 3 RB or 3 WR or 2 of each and a TE..

Well then, I would still roll with the receivers you got.

In my format we use 2WR/2RB/1FLEX/1TE. So of course I leave Graham in as he is a beast as well as the apple of Brees' eye. But if you had to bench one of those receivers I would say no. Roll with what you have.
